Toronto-based merchant bank Imperial Capital Corporation has teamed up with Martin Jamieson, former president of Robin Hood Multifoods and Pillsbury Canada, to focus once again on acquiring and growing a North American food company.

In partnership with ICC, Jamieson, with his extensive knowledge and experience in the food industry, will identify value-creating propositions for ICC investors. The focus of the initiative will be to seek out opportunities for growth among mid-sized businesses and non-strategic corporate divestitures with annual revenues in excess of $50m.

Martin Jamieson has recently led his second major Canadian food industry transaction overseeing the sale of Robin Hood Multifoods Inc to The J M Smucker Company.
